Sometimes friendships are more than skin deep.


In Poison Ink by Christopher Golden, we meet Sammi Holland. Sammi has no interest in the poseur crap most kids her age are into, and neither do her best friends. Caryn, Letty, Katsuko, TQ and Sammi have been oddballs all their lives. Once they find each other they form a bond that goes deeper than sisterhood.


A seemingly innocent suggestion that the girls should get matching tattoos to represent their friendship feels like a good idea to Sammi, at first. While exhilarated at the thought of doing something so forbidden, she soon begins to doubt her decision. Sammis doubt only grows stronger when she meets Dante, the tattoo artist who agrees to give the underage girls the tattoo. Four of the girls go through with the tattoo, but when its Sammis turn, she runs from the shop.


Suddenly, everything changes. Sammis friends are no longer the sweet, funny and cool girls they once were. Theyve turned into vicious, rebellious, dangerous strangers and Sammi unexpectedly becomes the focus of their violence.


Worst of all, Sammi believes she knows what has caused the transformation...poison ink.


If you like your roller coaster rides on the scary side, this one is for you. It definitely falls under the psychological thriller category and though the story is fully resolved, youll long for a sequel. Highly recommended!
